We are moving a dear but disabled friend from Rochester, New York to Suffolk County, Long Island to be near us. Family members who live near her now take what little money she gets from SSI when she needs to visit her doctors, shop for groceries, pick up medication, etc. They tell her itís for gas, or for their time. Itís sad, really.

She will be much better off near us as we donít need her money and we have time available to help her with her needs. We have been successful in having her Section 8 voucher "ported" and we are in close touch with the local housing authority. They are performing the final review of her package and everything should be finalized soon because July is her last month for occupancy in her present Rochester apartment. She will be considered a Suffolk County resident as of August 1st.

We have made arrangements for one of us to drive to Rochester for her last day there, and return to what will be her new apartment the following day, after a relaxing/fun overnight stay in a hotel to calm her nerves. However, we need to find a moving company in Rochester or nearby which would be able to pack-up her small apartment (household goods, boxes she has already packed, and some furniture), drive the goods to Long Island, and unload directly into her new apartment that same day.

Has anyone got any referrals/recommendations - good and bad reviews welcome! - with regard to such a moving company? We'd like to make arrangements ASAP.

I recommend Cook moving. They recently quoted an inter-state move for us and were lovely and very reasonable. I called them because a friend recommended them. (She has used them twice now and had a great experience both times.)

Last I knew (a couple of weeks back) they still had some openings in August.

Thank you, both, for your suggestions!

FYI, I have left messages for both companies, and I will post how it all turns out.

If anyone else has further input, I'd be glad to hear it!
